Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Ditzy-craftymess - Anything goes (new challenge blogs first challenge)

This is a card I am entering into the first challenge of the Ditzy Crafty mess.  The rules of this first challenge is Anything Goes.  The main image is from Debbi Moore, one of her deco ladies.  I have used this image before in a more elaborate card, but with glitter.

This time, I was in the mood for a more keep it simple style, so it is mainly matting and layering with toning pearlescent card, and then adding the pearls to embellish the lady.  I have not yet added a sentiment as this card is going into my stock box for future use, and the sentiment will be added at that time.  The base card is actually black although it does not quite look right in this light.  I meant to take my photos this afternoon in the bright sunlight, but I forgot, sorry folks.

As this is the first challenge, I want to wish everyone good luck and to say thank you to those who thought it up.
